Installing RIS on Windows XP

I am a hardware and networking engineer working with a service provider. I want to configure RIS on Windows XP Pro and install XP on another machine from RIS. Is this possible? If so, how can I do this?

Should you upgrade to Windows 7 or 8?

Windows XP shops don't have to migrate to Windows 7 anymore, but there are several pros and cons to weigh before deciding on a Windows 8 upgrade.

No, you need a dedicated server to install the remote installation services (RIS) service; it cannot be installed on a Windows XP computer.

For more information on the RIS service, consult the following articles:
Absence of device drivers can be problem for RIS clients
